  • (1888PressRelease) April 16, 2015 - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - Speaking to the press, Mr. Robert Bichefsky, a Senior Manager for product development of the company said, "GL's enhanced VQuad™ solution provides an automated method to test all types of data to and from the Smartphone, confirming performance, quality and reliability. With the introduction of GL's NetTest a variety of data tests can be performed directly from the mobile device and controlled remotely from the VQuad™ script. Tests include TCP, UDP, HTTP, VoIP, FTP, DNS, SMS, and Email, basically a full array of tests to definitively confirm the performance of the network (and the Smartphone device)."

    He added, "GL's VQuad™ software is enhanced to support Four Dual UTA's on a Single VQuad™ system which allows up to eight devices configured simultaneously, performing voice quality testing along with a variety of other analytical tests. Supported Dual UTA interfaces include 2-wire FXO, Bluetooth (including support for VoLTE), Balanced, Mobile and Push to Talk (PTT). Typical networks supported by GL's VQuad™ - Dual UTA hardware/software include Wireless (VoLTE, LTE, 4G, 3G) via Bluetooth or wired headset, Broadband Internet (LTE, 4G, 3G), VoIP SIP, PSTN, and TDM.

    Automated testing using GL's VQuad™ includes the ability for scripting with variable parameters for improved flexibility, portability with mobile drive testing, and remote accessibility using CLI or WebViewer™.

    The WebViewer™ provides centralized data retrieval along with mapping to Google Maps™ and analysis of Voice and Data. In fact, GL's mobile test solution provides the flexibility of connecting to any network, any service, and any interface."

    Mr. Bichefsky further added, "VQuad™ supports new Video Conference Testing using the VAC (Video Application Controller) for both manual and automated (scripted) tests. For redundancy and load sharing, VQuad™ and File Monitor and VQT support connections to as many as four remote Central Systems. Full access for modifying these connections (along with any VQuad™ related configuration) is available directly from the WebViewer™. Enhanced VQuad™ remote functionality supports most all available commands.

    Enhanced WebViewer™ now includes a consolidated console view to monitor virtually all results including VQT, VQuad™ and NetTest from a single screen. This view can be customized adding additional events and threshold levels making the Console a one-stop-shop for Network Analysis.

    The WebViewer™ Network Status is enhanced with improved look and feel (especially remote operations) along with additional functionality. Network status is provided for ALL VQuad™ Nodes, ALL VQT nodes, ALL File Monitor nodes and ALL Mobile connections. In other words, from the WebViewer™, the user can see exactly what's happening within the entire network and control and change settings on any node connected to the central system.

    Within Google Maps™, WebViewer™ supports pinning the NetTest results with Start/Stop Timestamp and GPS. In other words the user can easily determine when/where the test Started and when/where the test Ended (along with whether the test Passed or Failed based on preset thresholds). WebViewer™ includes several default configurations for use with Google Maps™.

    Email alert option has been added to the DataImport based on user-defined thresholds and events. Support is also provided for automated incremental backups of the Central database (Oracle only)."
